We love a Love Island TikTok and Joe Garratt has been providing us with some fun content, helping us to feel like it’s still summer.

More recently however, the 2019 Islander got a bit more serious on social media and shared some rare footage of his body transformation before he appeared on the ITV2 show.

In a TikTok entitled "I grew facial hair", Joe shared a throwback video before switching to some more recent thirst traps.

And thirst traps they are indeed…

The first pic is a topless mirror selfie, followed by some videos highlighting Joe’s new, more mature look with longer locks and facial hair.

And this isn’t the first time Joe has showcased his body transformation.

Last summer he shared some snaps of his childhood and admitted that he used to be "friend-zoned" at school because of his "chubbier" appearance.

Joe revealed, “In my school days, I didn’t worry about looking good or anything like that, but then I got a bit older. I injured my knee in rugby and had surgery and pushed it a bit far and gained a bit of weight.

“Then I realised, actually, I’m unfit and it’s time to be healthy, so started eating lots more fruit and veg and it started falling off. I went from Friend Zone Joe to suddenly, 'who are you?'"

Joe’s name has been featuring in the headlines a lot this week after it was revealed that he was dating Frankie Sims AND has joined TOWIE as a cast member.

Frankie Sims has a couple of famous exes, including Harry Lee and Jack Fincham and it looks like she's sticking to dating Love Island stars because she’s now been linked to Joe.

In Sunday's episode [10 October], TOWIE viewers saw Frankie and Joe go on a date together and it was pretty cute… As their blossoming romance continues, maybe we’ll get our first Love Island/TOWIE crossover wedding. Just imagine the guest list...
